1975 Troy Bilt horse tiller tine shaft question?
I am in the process of restoring a 1975 Troy Bilt Horse tiller. The Problem I am having is when I re-assemble the tine shaft into he housing and replace the cap on the left side I have play in the tine shaft left & right. Probibly in the neighborhood of 3/4 to 1 inch of play. I also have a little play front to back probibly 1/8". Are there any shims that are supposed to go between the bearings and the bronze gear? Are the bearings and the bronze gear supposed to move freely on the tine shaft or are they supposed to be pressed on? I can slide both off of the tine shaft.... Can the race wear out? The bearings are in good shape... Anyone with any suggestions please help!
